Update: Today I saw that people had been busy posting things around campus as well. I saw pamphlets at study tables and fliers on bulletin boards. Tomorrow I know that more of us will be out to push this a little bit more. We're tired but eager to see change. I actually think it might be good to drop some in faculty mailboxes of all things. I did it in EDTHP today. Maybe go to other departments and try it if you can afford to do it!


Feel free to print it out and use it.

Post it around campus.

Post it on your door.

Give it to friends and talk to them about why we do this.

We do it because we know the costs...costs that have been hidden from us for profits made in the name of "convenience." It's a culture that comes from what Wendell Berry calls "a symbiosis of an unlimited greed at the top and a lazy, passive, and self-indulgent consumptiveness at the bottom."

We are not deluded. We know that there is much work to be done and that what's on this flier is only the tip of the iceberg. It's a massive iceberg that presents our generation's and future generations' proverbial ship with disaster. So let's do this thing and ween ourselves off of this alleged convenience.

Let's do the right thing.
